Here's why so many nations want to control the South China Sea — and what China wants to do
 
01:59
The South China Sea plays an outsized role in international commerce and politics. A litany of regional and global powers crave its natural resources as well as the benefits that come with controlling on of the world's most important shipping lanes. China has aggressively pursued control over the Spratley Islands — an archipelago of rocks, reefs and cays that sit in the middle of the sea. Malaysia, Brunei, The Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan have staked their own claims to the area, but it's really the United States Navy that stands in the way of China. The Seventh Fleet, however, cannot keep China from reclaiming land on the islands it controls. Professor Dave Denoon, director of the NYU Center on US-China Relations explains how the situation arose and how it will likely play out in upcoming years. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

South China Sea - China Prepares for New Land Reclamation at Scarborough Shoal
 
02:04
South China Sea - China Prepares for new land reclamation at Scarborough Shoal U.S. military confirmed Chinese activity around Scarborough Shoal in the northern part of the Spratly archipelago, about 125 miles west of the Philippines base of Subic Bay. Admiral John Richardson, the head of U.S. naval operations, said that Chinese surface ship activity, survey type of activity is an area of concern that it may prepare for the next possible land reclamation. China seized the Scarborough reef from the Philippines in 2012. Since then, access to the territory has been restricted by China. Scarborough Shoal forms a triangle-shaped chain of reefs and rocks with a perimeter of 29 miles. It covers an area, including an inner lagoon, of 58 square miles. The shoal's highest point, South Rock, measures 6ft above water during high tide. Located north of it is a channel, approximately 1,214ft wide and 36ft deep, leading into the lagoon. Several other coral rocks encircle the lagoon, forming a large atoll. Scarborough Shoal is within Philippines' 200 nautical mile EEZ, if the Scarborough Shoal was considered the territory of Philippines. But if the shoal was considered the territory of China, then Philippines' 200 nautical mile EEZ cannot cover the shoal. The Philippine government brought the dispute to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea as provided in Part XV of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. A tribunal decision is dues in a few weeks. Chinese increased activities on the reef may related to this pending arbitration decision. Some suspects that China may goes further by declaring an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ). But U.S. military said that it is preparing on response to such a move.

China to expand land reclamation activities in South China Sea, say experts SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z Source video: http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/china-to-expand-land-reclamation-activities-in-south-china-sea-say-experts G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BEIJING - China is focused on the establishment of civil infrastructure on islands in the South China Sea rather than military installations, and will expand land reclamation activities, according to Chinese experts. "Most of the construction on islands in the South China Sea was completed in 2015 and the pace then slowed. Civilian facility construction is the major focus of the South China Sea islands building and the portion of defence deployment is relatively small," Mr Chen Xiangmiao, a research fellow at the National Institute for the South China Sea, told the Global Times on Monday (Feb 5). Mr Chen said some of the islands were likely to be expanded in future through more dredgging. He also noted that the easing of tensions between China and South-east Asian countries such as the Philippines had provided a golden opportunity for China to upgrade these areas. According to another expert, Dr Zhuang Guotu, the head of Xiamen University's Southeast Asian Studies Centre, foreign media was hyping China's construction in the South China Sea. "China has the right to build whatever it needs within its territory," Dr Zhuang said, adding that China's military deployments in the South China Sea were to defend its security and interests, rather than military expansion. Both Dr Zhuang and Mr Chen warned that the US was the biggest threat to stability in the South China Sea . "The US, Australia, Japan and other allies will constantly provoke China over this issue and that will incite other neighbouring South China Sea countries to do the same," Dr Zhuang said. US guided missile destroyer USS Hopper came within 12 nautical miles of Scarborough Shoal, also known as Huangyan Island, in January, according to reports. China's South China Sea construction projects covered about 290,000 square metres in 2017, according to a report released in December on a website run by the Nation... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

U.S. Will Not Block China's Access To Its artificial Islands in The South China Sea
 
10:11
U.S. Will Not Block China's Access To Its artificial Islands in The South China Sea Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, made international headline when he said, during his confirmation hearing with the senate, that United States should block China access to its manmade island in the South China Sea. But that was the first time he took a clear position toward the issue, but also was the last time. No one ever heard this again. So what is the Trump’s administration strategies on the South China Sea? The state department announced that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will travel to Japan, the Republic of Korea and China from March 15 through 19th, his first visit as Secretary of State to the East Asia and Pacific region. The state department clearly said “This administration is also intent on pursuing a constructive relationship with China.” So the key words is “constructive relationship with China”. Preventing China access to those sand built island would not be seen as constructive, but more likely an act of war. So the conclusion is, the South China Sea blockade threat will not be on Rex Tillerson’s agenda during his first official visit to the region next week. The South China Sea is a shallow but endlessly complicated body of water. Six nations , including Taiwan now compete for maritime jurisdiction based on conflicting claims to sovereignty over 51 of roughly 150 islands, atolls, and specks of rock just above the waves south and east of the mainland's coast. At the moment, Trump’s administration has no clear strategies on the South China Sea, besides carrying on the Obama’s Pivot Asia strategies and the Freedom of Navigation. Neither which will stop or slow down China nine dash line claims in the region. On the Freedom of Navigation, Trump’s administration deployed one of its most powerful, and advanced carrier strike group, including aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to patrol the South China Sea water. This move has been well received by Allies and observer. But patrolling will not stop china’s military buildup and land reclamation in this disputed water.

U.S. concerned about China′s land reclamation projects in South China Sea

00:58
The United States is taking a tough approach over China′s buildup of artificial islands in the South China Sea. Holding a joint press conference with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing on Saturday,... U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he was very concerned about China′s massive land reclamation activities and pressed China to take actions to reduce tension. Wang said China was unshakeable in its determination to safeguard its sovereignty,... but tempered his words by saying China and the U.S. have more common interests than differences. China claims almost the whole of the South China Sea, and has ignored the claims of countries such as the Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia. Kerry will certainly receive a warmer welcome when he arrives in Seoul on Sunday for a two-day visit. He will meet with President Park Geun-hye and his South Korean counterpart Yun Byung-se for discussions on their alliance and preparations for next month′s summit between Presidents Park and Obama in Washington.

China’s South China Sea grab

China’s South China Sea grab SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ------------------------------------------------------ It has been just five years since China initiated its major land reclamation in the South China Sea, and the country has already shifted the territorial status quo in its favor—without facing any international pushback. The anniversary of the start of its island building underscores the transformed geopolitics in a corridor central to the international maritime order. In December 2013, the Chinese government pressed the massive Tianjing dredger into service at Johnson South Reef in the Spratly archipelago, far from the Chinese mainland. The Spratlys are to the south of the Paracel Islands, which China seized in 1974, capitalising on American forces’ departure from South Vietnam. In 1988, the reef was the scene of a Chinese attack that killed 72 Vietnamese sailors and sunk two of their ships. The dredger’s job is to fragment sediment on the seabed and deposit it on a reef until a low-lying manmade island emerges. The Tianjing—boasting its own propulsion system and a capacity to extract sediment at a rate of 4,530 cubic metres per hour—did its job very quickly, creating 11 hectares of new land, including a harbor, in less than four months. All the while, a Chinese warship stood guard.

HOW CHINA HAS USED THE NORTH KOREAN CRISIS TO FURTHER ITS CAUSE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA?
 
08:15
INTRODUCTION World’s and America’s focus has been on North Korea, and rightly so. Tensions over China's island-building in the South China Sea may have eased in the past year, but Beijing has kept busy. New satellite imagery shows China has built infrastructure covering 72 acres (28 hectares) in the Spratly and Paracel islands during 2017 to equip its larger outposts to be air and naval bases. The Washington-based Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative closely tracks developments in the South China Sea, where China and several Asian governments have conflicting territorial claims. It said on Thursday there has been construction of hangars, underground storage, missile shelters, radar arrays and other facilities. In this video, Defense Updates analyses HOW CHINA HAS USED THE NORTH KOREAN CRISIS TO FURTHER ITS CAUSE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA? BACKGROUND China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over the sea have infuriated competing claimants Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines as well as Vietnam. United States, Japan, Australia and India favor freedom of navigation as it is a very important sea route with 5 trillion $ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. China embarked on its massive land-reclamation program in early 2014. South China Sea Arbitration, was an arbitration case brought by t Philippines against China The landmark decision rejected China’s assertion that it enjoys historical rights over a huge area of the South China Sea encompassed by a “nine-dash line.” China had argued that the tribunal had no jurisdiction in the matter and rejected the decision. Many complex disputes have been resolved with this type of arbitration including maritime boundaries. China’s outright rejection symbolizes its high handed behavior and utter disregard for international norms. CHINA’S STRATEGY China has tried to change the territorial status quo gradually, island-by-island instead of trying to capture in one go. For example, China first occupied the Paracel Islands in 1974 and then slowly expanded its presence southward by attacking Vietnam’s islands in the Spratly chain in the 1980s. This strategy known as salami slicing, aims for slow accumulation of small changes. STATUS The new construction activity comes as China joins what are likely to be protracted negotiations with Southeast Asian nations on a “ ode of conduct” for South China Sea. Tensions with the US on the issue have also eased, despite Washington's criticism of Beijing's conduct. The construction is the follow-up phase to a campaign of land reclamation that was completed by early 2016 in the Spratlys, an island chain where Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam and Brunei also have claims. According to the Pentagon, China has added more than 3,200 acres (1,248 hectares) of land to the seven land features it occupies in the area. ANALYSIS Greg Poling, the initiative's director, said China had seized a diplomatic opening after the election of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who adopted a conciliatory stance toward Beijing over their territorial dispute. It's also been less of a focus for President Donald Trump's administration, preoccupied by North Korea's nuclear threat and trade disputes with China. "It's gotten off the front pages, but we shouldn't confuse that with a softening in China's pursuit of its goals. They are continuing all the construction they want,” Poling said. The most construction has been on Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys, including hangars alongside its 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) airstrip, underground structures likely intended to house munitions or other materiel, hardened shelters for missile platforms, and communication and radar facilities, the initiative said. CONCLUSION The United States does not claim territory in the South China Sea but has declared it has a national interest in ensuring that the territorial disputes there are resolved peacefully in accordance with international law and that freedom of navigation and overflight are guaranteed. China has opposed what it calls US meddling in an Asian dispute. It is the greatest of irony that even a communist nation Vietnam has sought support from capitalist America to counter belligerence and aggression from China which is a communist nation. Chinese recent activities have been such. China is embroiled in disputes on multiple fronts, latest being with India on Doklam plateau. America under Trump had already stepped up the game with increase in frequency of Freedom of Navigation Operations as well as initiating investigation in illegal trade practices of China. It remains to be seen how U.S can respond to China and North Korea at the same time. Audio by Scott Leffler — scottleffler.com

South China Sea disputes: China’s land reclamation in the Spratlys grows, says Pentagon - TomoNews
 
01:21
BEIJING — A new Pentagon report released on Thursday says that China’s reclamation efforts in the Spratly Islands has grown dramatically over the last few months, and at a rate far faster than earlier this year. Previous estimates that China has reclaimed 2,000 acres since December 2013 are wrong, the Pentagon report says, and the real amount is around 2,900 acres. According to the Pentagon, China has reclaimed more land in the past 20 months than the other claimants combined over the past 40 years. China said in early August that it has halted its reclamation efforts in the island chain, although many countries question these claims. On Fiery Cross Reef, China has built an airstrip that the country could use as an alternative to an aircraft carrier. Reuters reports that the 3,000-metre-long runway will most likely be operational by the end of this year. At many of the reclamation sites in the Spratlys, China has also built channels and berthing areas for large ships. The new Pentagon report, titled “The Asia-Pacific Maritime Security Strategy,” was required by Congress ahead of a 2015 defense bill. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Truth About China's Massive Land Reclamation in the South China Sea
 
04:25
Many believe that China's massive land reclamation and building of military structures like air strips and ports is part of its effort to preempt any favorable ruling to the Philippines in regards to latter's UNCLOS arbitration case against China's 9-dash line claim. China's action is a cause of concern for its Asian neighbors as well as the US. In January 2013, Philippines took China International Tribunal for the Laws of the Sea to challenge the latter's expansive 9-dash line claim in the South China Sea encompassing Philippines sovereign territories in Scarborough and Spratlys. In 2013, in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan's November 2013 destruction in Central Philippines, China was criticized by many countries including its hawkish media for initially donating a paltry $100,000 but increased it to $1.6M amid international criticism. This is in contrast to US aid to its former colony and military ally of $20M and former World War 2 enemy Japan's $30M. Even Swedish furniture manufacturer Ikea's donation of $2.7M surpassed China's donation. It is believed that it was a political statement of China in response to the Philippine UNCLOS arbitration case against her.

Chinese Military Presence in South China Sea
 
02:26
China’s recently revealed massive land reclamation activities in the South China Sea represent a particular threat to rival claimant Vietnam’s strategic position and interests. Factional competition ahead of next year’s Communist Party National Congress, where five-year plans, policies, and leadership positions are determined, has complicated Hanoi’s ability to devise a coherent and credible response to the maritime area’s increasingly complex geopolitics. Recent reports on China’s island-building have heralded a strategic shift, one that aims to extend its traditional “offshore waters defense” to “open seas protection.” Financial Times reported on June 7 that the dredging appears “to be aimed at creating military facilities, including a 3km runway capable of handling fighter jets” that could be employed “to claim airspace over the South China Sea by declaring an air defense identification zone once the runway is finished.” Although largely geared for anti-ship operations, Vietnam’s navy and air force are already severely outgunned and outnumbered by China’s People’s Liberation Army. Those qualitative and quantitative differences have widened in recent years as China has bolstered its naval capacities and reach, and Vietnam has scrambled to procure and integrate enough vessels, mainly Russian submarines, to create a credible deterrent force. A Chinese fighter jet presence in the Spratly islands, if realized, would significantly boost Beijing’s power projection capabilities and further tilt the maritime area’s strategic balance in its favor. In particular, a Chinese air force presence would provide a new, proximal platform to target Vietnam’s naval-controlled shore-based artillery and missile systems, viewed by many strategic analysts as Hanoi’s strongest deterrent to a potential Chinese attack. Led by two-term Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and viewed generally as “reformist,” one Party faction has bid to counter China’s rising threat by bolstering strategic ties to the United States. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s early June visit to Vietnam symbolically advanced that trend, with both countries’ military chiefs agreeing to a “joint vision statement” that aims broadly, if not vaguely, at deepening defense relations over the next 20 years. Carter was the first American defense chief to visit a Vietnamese military base and tour a Vietnamese coast guard vessel, a U.S. Defense Department statement said. Building on U.S.-Vietnamese naval exercises earlier this year in Danang, where the two sides practiced using code for “unplanned encounters at sea,” Carter said the U.S. would provide $18 million for Vietnam’s Coast Guard to purchase American patrol vessels. Last October, the U.S. eased but did not lift a long-held ban on the sale of “lethal” arms to Vietnam imposed in response to its poor rights record. Days after Carter’s visit, reports emerged that Vietnam is in talks with European and U.S. contractors to purchase jets, patrol planes and armed drones, procurements that would significantly upgrade its air defenses in the South China Sea and lessen Hanoi’s reliance on Russia for arms at a time Moscow and Beijing draw closer. The reports said Vietnam was in discussions with Sweden’s Saab, European multinational Eurofighter, the defense wing of France’s Airbus, and U.S. defense giants Lockheed Martin and Boeing. They did not indicate which companies where in talks for which armaments. While Dung’s faction has reached to Washington, a rival conservative faction led by President Truong Tan Sang and Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong is viewed as ideologically tied to China. In April, Trong and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed at a meeting in Beijing to control their maritime disputes, bolster strategic ties and consider joint development initiatives in the South China Sea. Sang sounded similarly conciliatory notes on the maritime disputes after meeting Xi on the sidelines of last November’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Forum hosted by Beijing. Sang and Trong were seen as instrumental in smoothing relations with Beijing after deadly anti-China riots in May 2014 drove hundreds of Chinese nationals out of Vietnam. Dung, on the other hand, sounded strong nationalistic notes in the run-up to the riots, which were sparked by China’s placement of an oil exploration rig in waters claimed by Vietnam. Analysts and diplomats still wonder whether the riots, which destroyed several foreign-owned factories, including 14 owned by mainland Chinese investors, erupted organically or had hidden official

China Has Nearly Conquered The South China Sea
 
07:59
This video shows you that China Has Nearly Conquered The South China Sea. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s rapprochement with China, a gambit that has traded security concessions for economic and investment largesse, has once again been undermined by developments in the South China Sea. Undisclosed sources, most likely from the Philippine defense establishment, gave the Philippine Daily Inquirer a new cache of satellite images which show China has virtually completed its militarization of the artificially-created islands it controls in the contested maritime area. The high-resolution photos were published on the liberal newspaper’s website on Monday. Last year, defense establishment sources handed satellite imagery of suspicious Chinese activity close to Philippine-controlled Thitu Island, also in the South China Sea, to members of the opposition and the media. Those photos, too, raised questions about Duterte’s accommodation with China. The latest aerial footage shows a sprawling network of runways, advanced weaponries and storage facilities across Philippine-claimed land features in the Spratly Islands, namely on the Fiery Cross, Cuerteron, Gaven, Johnson South, Mischief, Subi and McKennan reefs. As one prominent Chinese academic from Xiamen University’s Southeast Asian Studies Center told the ultra-nationalist Global Times newspaper, “China has the right to build whatever it needs within its territory” in the South China Sea. Earlier this year, Beijing openly celebrated its expanding military footprint across disputed land features, having reclaimed as much as 290 square meters to augment its already large artificial islands. China admitted that it has deployed advanced radar systems to the area, a supposedly reasonable move for defensive purposes. The news of Chinese fait accompli in militarizing the features immediately unlashed a firestorm in the Philippines, with prominent statesmen prodding the government to take a tougher stance. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, a leading national voice on South China Sea issues, lambasted the Duterte administration’s “policy of appeasement”, which has further “embolden[ed] China to further militarize its artificial islands in the Spratlys.” “Has the Philippines been sold? It’s worrisome to see that China’s military bases are almost complete in the [South China Sea],” lamented Senator Benigno Aquino IV, a relative of former president Aquino and a leading voice of opposition. “While their warships are in our seas, we continue to give in to their whims and, all the while, we are kept in the dark as to our government’s dealings with China,” the senator complained. Previous President Benigno Aquino III confronted China and drew closer to the US for strategic assurances. Congressman Carlos Isagani Zarate, member of the left-leaning bloc in the lower house of Congress, lambasted the “inaction and deafening silence” of the Duterte administration. He called on the government to end its “see-no-evil; speak-no-evil; hear-no-evil” approach to what he views as “blatant violation of our sovereignty” by China. china sea, china south, china southern, china southern airlines, chinese airlines, chinese southern airlines, india us, india us relations, india usa, indo us, indo us relations, latest news in south china sea, south china, south china sea, south china sea conflict, south china sea dispute, south china sea news, south chinese sea, us india relations, usa to india ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

China rejects US criticism of reclamation work in South China Sea
 
01:07
China strongly criticizes the US for accusing Beijing of increasing tension in the region through its construction projects in disputed parts of the South China Sea. Chunying made the remarks in response to the latest US National Military Strategy report which renewed anti-Beijing allegations regarding the contested South China Sea islands. China claims almost the whole of the South China Sea but its neighbors including the Philippines and Malaysia have overlapping claims. Beijing says creating islands is within its sovereign rights. But China’s neighbors fear the construction work in disputed waters could lead to more land reclamation by China and pave the way for military installations far from its shores.

The Philippines is calling on other Southeast Asian countries to take a stand against China′s land reclamation in the disputed waters of the South China Sea. Speaking at a meeting of ASEAN foreign ministers in Malaysia on Sunday,... Philippine Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said that, if China′s construction of artificial islands on reefs claimed by other countries is allowed to be completed, then Beijing will impose its claim over more than 85 percent of the sea. The Malaysian minister struck a slightly softer tone,... urging China to discuss its plans with ASEAN nations as he noted China was one of ASEAN′s most important trading partners. China continues to defend the reclamation, saying it′s Chinese territory and the structures are for public service use and to support Chinese fishermen.

China, the US and the threat of misjudgment in the South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month to Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia signals a new era of competition between the United States and China in Southeast Asia and the South China Sea. China critics in the US frequently warn of what they assume are China’s dangerous intentions regarding the South China Sea – and what it may do to achieve its goals. They say it wants to dominate the sea militarily as part of its ambitious and aggressive expansionism and that, therefore, it will continue to militarise the features it occupies and undertake major naval exercises there. They say China may interfere with freedom of commercial navigation and essentially control all activities there, including fishing, and oil and gas exploration and development. To accomplish this, it will continue to intimidate rival claimants, coerce them via economic aid and “debt traps” and defy – and change – the existing applicable intentional rules. Reinforcing these warnings, the US has officially declared China a “strategic competitor” and a “revisionist nation”. It has thus made clear it considers China a potential enemy, and it is presumed that “the gnomes in the basement” of the National Security Council, the Pentagon and the State Department are constructing and planning for worst-case scenarios – including war. More specifically, the US has repeatedly criticised China’s claims, actions and policies in the South China Sea and has even publicly embarrassed it by barring it from the Rim of the Pacific naval exercises until it has “ceased all land reclamation activities in the South China Sea” and “removed all weapons from its land reclamation sites”.

South China Sea dispute heating up: China reclaiming land around reef off Philippine coast
 
01:19
Satellite images show that China is reclaiming land around a submerged reef in disputed territory in the South China Sea. The photos show that China has been reclaiming land around Mischief Reef, which lies 250km off the Philippine island of Palawan in the disputed Spratly Islands that are claimed by China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. Several dredgers can be seen at the northern and western edges of the reef. The entrance to the reef has also been widened to about 275 meters, the New York Times reported. "China is creating a great wall of sand with dredgers and bulldozers," Adm. Harry Harris, the commander of the United States Pacific fleet said in a speech in Canberra, Australia. He noted that China has now created more than four square kilometers of artificial landmass. China has rejected criticism of its reclamation activities and said the work falls "within the scope of China's sovereignty", according to Reuters. A Chinese amphibious warship, capable of holding up to 800 troops was also spotted patrolling the reef's southern entrance, according to the New York Times. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The Washingtonbased Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative AMTI of the Center for Strategic and International Studies reported on Thursday that hangars, underground storage, missile shelters, radar arrays and other facilities have been built. The building follows land reclamation by China which was completed in 2016 in the Spratlys. The island chain is also subject to territorial claims from Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines and Brunei. The US Pentagon says China has added more than 3,200 acres of land to the seven territories it occupies in the area. Satellite images show radar and underground facilities on Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratly Islands A question of use China says the artificial islands in the Spratlys with their airstrips and military installations are mainly for civilian purposes and to safeguard fishing and maritime trade. The AMTI reported that China has deployed new military aircraft, including J11B fighter planes used in drills. In November there were Y8 transport aircraft believed to be capable of electronic intelligence gathering. The US has accused China of militarizing the region and changing its geography to strengthen its claims across the South China Sea. Washington believes China will use the islands and its military presence on them to deny access to strategic routes. In the Paracel islands, a new helipad, wind turbines and large radar towers had been built. The radar towers on Triton Island could be used in Chinas disputes with Vietnam and with the US over freedom of navigation operations, which the US navy has used to back its perceived right to free passage in international waters.

The waters are becoming more choppy between the world′s two superpowers. The United States says it can no longer tolerate China′s efforts to militarize the South China Sea. Speaking at the ASEAN Regional Forum on Thursday,... U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called on all claimants to stop further land reclamation and construction of new facilities on disputed features. The forum was dominated by Beijing′s rapid expansion of reefs and construction of military posts in the South China Sea over the last 18 months or so. Kerry,... who had earlier in the day agreed to cooperate with Japan on maritime issues,... said the construction of such facilities threatened peace in the area. On Wednesday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had announced that land reclamation in the South China Sea had already stopped. The U.S. official said he hoped that was true,... but other envoys at the ASEAN forum refuted Wang′s claims.

China wins South China Sea control a year after arbitration loss | Hot News

SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z URL video: https://youtu.be/0UPth-btlWs G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- China wins South China Sea control a year after arbitration loss - 4 days ago - Stop the South China Sea Charade Source audio: https://goo.gl/nzvZRR New development in South China Sea with record extended-reach drilling 2 days ago - UK to boost US in South China Sea dispute to send Brexit message to world Little wonder, then, that last month, a year after the arbitration case, a spokesman of China’s foreign ministry, Geng Shuang, declared: “With the concerted efforts of China, the Philippines and other ASEAN countries, the situation in the South China Sea has stabilized and taken on a good trend.” In other words, flouting international law works. With little external support, the small countries of Southeast Asia have little choice but to make the best of a bad situation. China wants to keep it that way. The week before ASEAN opened its annual meetings, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged ASEAN members to unite against “non-regional forces” – rather like the fox telling chickens not to let anyone else into the henhouse. The identity of these outside forces was clear to all. On August 7, the United States, Japan and Australia held a ministerial meeting of the Trilateral Strategic Dialogue and issued a joint statement. There was a paragraph on the South China Sea. “The ministers called on China and the Philippines to abide by the Arbitral Tribunal’s 2016 Award in the Philippines-China arbitration, as it is final and legally binding on both parties,” the statement said. Responding to the announcement that China and ASEAN had reached agreement on a framework for a Code of Conduct on the South China Sea, the statement “urged ASEAN member states and China to ensure that the COC be finalized in a timely manner, and that it be legally binding, meaningful, effective and consistent with international law”. China did not appreciate such unsolicited advice. Wang Yi said some countries “outside the South China Sea are still dwelling on the past and turning a blind eye to positive changes of the situation”. Officially, Beijing espouses a policy of resolving problems through dialogue and negotiations. But the reality of its military power is ever present. China claims almost the entire South China Sea. Thus, Duterte disclosed in May that President Xi Jinping had told him that if the Philippines tried to drill for oil in an area within Manila’s exclusive economic zone, China would declare war. In June, after Vietnam granted the Spanish energy firm Repsol permission to drill for gas within its exclusive economic zone, China issued repeated warnings. Finally, Vietnam’s ambassador to China was told that, unless the drilling stopped, China would take military action. Hanoi backed down. This month, ASEAN marked its 50th anniversary with its usual series of meetings. A statement was issued after a meeting of its 10 foreign ministers. As in previous years, the South China Sea was discussed but, this time, the statement did not mention China by name. But it did take note of “the concerns expressed by some Ministers on the land reclamations and activities in the area, which have eroded trust and confidence, increased tensions and may undermine peace, security and stability in the region”. Foreign Minister Wang found comfort in the fact that the section this year “is much shorter than that of the past” and did not mention China. He also declared that China had ceased its reclamation activities in 2015. This was rebutted by the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank. “China’s own reclamation work did not end in mid-2015 with the completion of its artificial islands in the Spratlys,” it said while releasing recent photographs. “Beijing continues to reclaim land farther north, in the Paracel Islands.” One person who believed China had stopped reclamation was the Philippine foreign secretary, Alan Peter Cayetano. He had lobbied against referring to land reclamation because the Chinese “are not claiming land anymore”. Evidently, however, his ASEAN associates weren’t as trusting and thus land reclamation was again cited. So, ironically, despite losing in the Arbitral Tribunal, China has won effective control of the South China Sea. Unless the US, Japan, Australia and others are willing to go beyond issuing pious statements, China has shown that it pays to defy international law. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President Obama Sternly Warns China About South China Sea Expansion
 
05:05
President Obama Sternly Warns China About South China Sea Expansion (VOA) U.S. President Barack Obama sternly warned China Monday that its land reclamation projects in the South China Sea are counterproductive and a threat to Southeast Asian prosperity. President Obama Meeting with Young Southeast Asian Leaders He told a group of young Southeast Asian leaders visiting the United States that "it may be that some" of China's territorial claims to the waters are legitimate. "But they shouldn't just try to establish that based on throwing elbows and pushing people out of the way," President Obama said as he thrust his elbows outward in front of a lectern at the White House. The American leader said the United States does not have a territorial claim to the region, but wants the disputes over the waters China and other countries are claiming to be settled peacefully. "We're not parties in the dispute," he said. "But we do have a stake in making sure that they're resolved peacefully, diplomatically in accordance with internationally established standards. And for that reason we think that land reclamation, aggressive actions by any party in that area are counterproductive." He said the U.S. will work with any country willing "to establish and enforce norms and rules that can continue growth and prosperity in the region." Obama added, "The truth is that China is going to be successful. It's big. It's powerful. Its people are talented and they work hard." The U.S. and China have increasingly clashed in recent days over Beijing's artificial island-building, turning underwater land into airfields. U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told an international security summit in Singapore on Saturday that the U.S. opposes "any further militarization" of the disputed lands, after it spotted two large motorized artillery vehicles that China had placed on one of the artificial islands. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the U.S. was "making absurd remarks about China's long-established sovereignty and rights, stirring up trouble and slinging accusations regarding China's appropriate and rational construction activities on its islands. China resolutely opposes this.'' Obama answered a variety of questions about Southeast Asia and his philosophy of governing from some of the 75 young leaders ages 18 to 35 who are completing a five-week visit to the U.S. They are part of a leadership program he established for young people from the 10 countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to promote democracy and economic growth in the region. One of the visitors asked Mr. Obama how he wants history to recall his presidency, which will end in January 2017. "Fondly, I hope," Obama joked. Obama's critics often claim that he has weakened U.S. power overseas. But he contended, "We have put our international relationships on very strong footing." He said the Muslim Rohingya minority have been discriminated against by the Myanmar government, leading him to offer two pieces of advice for countries in Southeast Asia and across the world. Obama said countries are only successful if they do not divide themselves along religious and ethnic lines, and do not discriminate against women. 2015 june video

Pentagon: China expanding in South China Sea
 
01:33
(13 May 2016) A new Pentagon report says China has reclaimed more than 3,200 acres (1300 hectares) of land in the southeastern South China Sea. But the country's focus has shifted to developing and weaponising those man-made islands so it will have greater control over the maritime region without resorting to armed conflict. In its most detailed assessment to date of China's island-building program, the U.S. Defense Department said three of the land features in the Spratly Islands now have nearly 10,000-foot (3,000 metres) runways and large ports in various stages of construction. The report argues that the accelerated building effort doesn't give China any new territorial rights. Chinese officials have defended the land reclamation by saying it is Beijing's territory, adding that the buildings and infrastructure are for public service use and to support fishermen.

China warns US to 'stay out' of artificial island issue in South China Sea
 
00:52
A top Chinese general has warned the United States to “stay out” of Beijing’s project of building an artificial island in the South China Sea, saying the construction is legitimate and justifiable. "The US is obviously biased considering that the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam have already set up military facilities," People's Liberation Army Major General Luo Yuan said on Monday. "China is likely to withstand the international pressure and continue the construction, since it is completely legitimate and justifiable,” he added. The strong warning was issued after Washington criticized China for building an island in the Spratly Islands that is large enough for an airfield in the South China Sea. The island with 3,000 meters long and 200-300 meters wide can accommodate an airstrip and a harbor large enough for tankers and naval warships, said IHS Jane's Defense Weekly. Following the revelation of the project, the United States called on China to freeze the construction of the island.
